Katya Reimann had an excellent debut novel, but the second in her Tielmaran Chronicles failed to live up to the promise of the first. The third, however, is yet to come, and I have high hopes...
WIND FROM A FOREIGN SKY
Katya Reimann's debut novel is surprising in its thorough world-building and exciting (and even) pace. The well developed religion and geography are fascinatingly different; equally interesting is the system of magic used consistently throughout. Aside from an excellent background, there's also a fast-paced plot with plenty of suspense and surprises and some truly likeable characters. Gaultry's relationship with the male protagonist is one of the more intriguing I've run across-- NOT your usual sappy and predictable romance. And unlike most epic fantasies, Wind has a satisfactory conclusion, though a few strands are left dangling.
